Cost reduction

Productivity losses can have a serious impact on a business. They are most visible, when the contractual production volumes or quality standards cannot be delivered to the customer. Usually an enormous need for action is the consequence. In these situations, the end justifies the means. Almost no efforts are spared to avoid a client shut down of their production. Easily the costs can increase significantly under these circumstances.

However, the impact is not always immediately visible. Often line managers are not aware of the full problem or that already before a massive customer intervention, the problem might develop into a very critical situation. The reactions to such operational problems are usually far too late.

In a critical situation, financial results underachieve the budget, investments do not deliver the planned ROI and liquidity melts away.
